About

Check out my about.me profile!

I'm a 25 yr old Welshman living in Wiltshire, England. By day I work as a product designer in the plastics industry, and by night I work on personal illustration work and character designs. My design interests are broad but I particularly like working on furniture designs and products for children. I also love vinyl toys made by the likes of Kidrobot and Toy2R.

My background is mainly in product design and technical drawing, so I have only recently started using graphic software such as Adobe Illustrator & Indesign, and I'm also trying to improve my knowledge of html for a bit of web design. As an illustrator, I am almost entirely self taught, and am always scouring the web for tutorials and advice. Aside design and illustration I love rock and metal music, and playing electric guitar.

This year I entered the Sketchbook Project 2012, and am continuing to blog about my latest sketch work, branding and illustration projects. I am constantly working on new projects, including a new website, so please check back for updates. Or follow me on Twitter at the link below. I enjoy networking with like-minded people, so please get in touch!
